Dialing in a Plain Jane

I put this rifle together with leftovers with the exception of a new Green Mountain standard profile barrel, I want to see how they perform compared to the heavy taper style. The Ruger All Weather stock shown was an interference fit at the front of the barrel channel so I swapped it back to a Hogue Overmolded.

I went out to the range with the latest configuration without checking the winds and they were HOWLING. We've had a couple weeks with winds in the low to mid teens gusting to mid 20's mph.

Plain Jane has the Hogue stock(not pictured), JWH hammer pulling at ~3.5#'s Simmons 3-9 AO scope and GM barrel.

First trip out after restocking with the Hogue the wind was pretty bad, I'm not even going to waste my time measuring. I was experimenting with a rubber pad under the barrel at the front of the channel, the bottom two sets of SV, but...

I picked up a $6 puck of JB Marine Epoxy(?) at Lowes when I was there and did a quick lampshade bed job which turned out OK. The receiver seems to fit in the stock pretty snug so I only bedded one spot immediately in front of the take down screw, plenty of float. The receiver is locked in and the barrel rings like a piece of rebar set in concrete when I ping it.

Winds were better this morning. Wolf Target turned in the best groups of the day, Green Tag was the most expensive disappointment. I think with a trigger job the SV will get close to MOA. I'm challenging myself with only 10 shot groups and a 3-9 scope.
